Ever since I was born there have been one or two cats roaming our house at a time and I loved growing up with these pets. The American shorthair are very easy to groom and take care of and also stay healthy through a relatively long life span. I favor the low-key nature of these pets as opposed to dogs which tend to be more demanding as far as daily care and general energy. Cats are also a great alternative for those with small houses or yards as well as those who like to keep their pets indoors.
